On March 19th I flew back home to New Zealand with my daughter, which gave me an excellent chance to watch a couple of in-flight films. My first choice was this one.
And it was a most excellent film, every bit as good as it’s four Academy Awards would suggest. Rami Malek was absolute superbness as Freddie, he nailed I thought. Everything else about the film was all well done too, and I have no complaints at all really. Nice one.
I wonder what the next music film will be after “Rocketman” comes out… perhaps a John Lennon flick, or a film about Duran Duran, or maybe Jim Morrison? Who knows, but as long as they are well made I don’t really care who it is about.
